Sketching Brunswick Street, Fitzroy: crossing Gertrude Street

Fitzroy Library Exhibition 13 Nov 2020 to 31 Jan 2021:  Display Case 3

My friend Alf laughs at how long it took me to draw every building on the west side of Brunswick Street from Victoria Parade to Gertrude Street. He says it was a year, but he exaggerates – it was just six months. It was a special occasion as I picked up my sketching things and we finally crossed at the lights. Back in 1866 they didn’t seem to need traffic lights. Or did they?
